of sfo. and there are planes taking off and landing right now. of course they're only running two runways right now. but you can see the fuselage lit up and ready for the ntsb to step in and start the investigation. >> thank you for that, scott, that update and that live picture. we saw vehicles earlier in the area. are they moving about? >> they have been. aye i've seen eighth of units coming in and out. so it looks like they're taking shifts to prep this for the ntsb to start their investigation. >> you look at this, and it really is -- you understand when mayor adly says this could have been much worse. >> oh, my, yes! the fact that it made the tarmac at all, and all the communities that surround the airport! there are so many ways that could have been so much worse. and it's bad enough as it is! you can imagine what the people were feeling like as they were trying to get out of the plane. >> yes, the whole tail is just gone. we have had crews inside, outside sfo, obviously, all day. charles clifford is standing by live now with an update. >> reporter: right now i'm inside terminal 3 h

. we have four runways in sfo. we reopened two of the four runways and we are operating limited a arrivals and departners in sfo. we recommend passengers to check with their airline for the status of their flight before coming out to the airport today. thank you for coming, our next briefing it will be at sen time time 30 in the next location. >> good news there, and of the passengers that were deemed to be unaccounted for. at this point it appears they are all accounted for with the exception of one. and there were 307 people on board of this flight. and 291 passengers and 16 crew. at this point, 306 have been accounted for and two fatalities. and we will bring back port golds who is the director of the national safety board. peter, in term was what happened and caused the flight to go down, there is little information available about that? >> and that is the way it is going to be for a while because until we get the data recorders and until we get a look at how the aircraft and the flight crew were performing, you will not know. the attention should be focused on what an extra
. when you see that wreckage on the runway or off the runway here at sfo. back to you guys in new york. >> adam, when you look at those pictures of the crash, a lot of people wondering how, in fact, did those people manage to get out of this aircraft. for miles people could see this fireball sitting on the runway. we were able to talk to different passengers there. how do they describe getting out of this aircraft? >> you know, it's interesting you mention that, clayton. one of the pilots i spoke to, watching all this coverage. i know them really well. talking about a couple of things. jet fuel isn't as flammable as gasoline. that allows you more time, buys you more time than years ago. while it takes a long time to get on and off of the plane. when we're in the back, seems like it takes forever. when you have a situation like this and all the doors open, you can get people off the plane, if there are not a lot of injuries on board, can you get them off in a minute or two. you can get to exit. it's that important to pay attention to where it is, because it's that much faster for you to
you all for coming. it's certainly been a challenging and difficult day at sfo today. i want to start by kind of reconfirming some of the facts and we'll provide some updated information on passenger numbers for you. so again, this morning at 11:27 a.m., we had an incident involving asiana flight 214. this is a flight that originated in shanghai and continued on through seoul airport on its way to san francisco. it's a boeing 777 aircraft, and our manifest counts the number of individuals on board the aircraft, 291 passengers and 16 crew for a total of 307 on board the aircraft. as i mentioned, we do have some updated information on the status of those passengers and crew, and for that i'm going to turn it over to assistant deputy chief dale karnes. dale? >> good evening. of the 307 souls on board, we had 181 total that were transported to local hospitals. of that 181, 49 were serious and were in the initial victims transported from the scene. an additional 132 were transported later on into the incident after being triaged as they were the more minor to moderate casualties. we've als
learned today or at the end of the day yesterday that the guide path technology was not operational at sfo. the folks from sfo seem to suggest that that in no way shape or form should have played a role in what happened. mention about required systems. based on what you heard from the ntsb is there any suggestion that those systems could have helped prevent this if they would have been functional? >> i don't get the impression that the glide slope was the problem. it was a visual approach and pilots are trained to dot that without reference to the glide path. but i am concerned about the power being at idle whether thet auto throttles were engaged because the pilot is supposed to keep hands on the throttles for that reason and he is watching the speed decrease. as the speed decreases he starts to push the throttles forward whether the auto throttles do it or not. >> what does that tell you? >> i don't like to look back and quarterback what a captain has done or the co pilot. i can tell you that that is very unprofessional to not be in a position to control that aircraft regardless of what
